(Newser) – Kellogg is warning consumers not to eat its Austin and Keebler brand peanut butter crackers because a supplier has been linked to the salmonella outbreak, CNN reports. The precautionary notice recommends customers "hold the product until we have more information." The snack maker is freezing inventory and pulling the products from shelves until the investigation of the outbreak is complete.
